We had hail today!  Maybe snow tonight. Remember the almond blossoms?  Ed, that is an interesting ring you have!  :)

Have a blessed Sabbath, all!

8" of snow yesterday.  Very windy.  10 degrees this morning.  More snow for tomorrow.  Spring seems far away.  :(

Oh, Wally - I am fearful we will get the same between today and tomorrow. It's Richard's fault!  >:(

Richard, you must have "Huffed and puffed" to blow ugly weather our way. Please keep it to yourself or turn a quarter circle and blow it in a more northerly direction. Thank you, kind sir.  :P

And how many old dish soap/ detergent  commercials do YOU remember ?    ;D

Well if those had been my hands I probably would have went out after a sale on shoes..........but since they're not really my lunch hooks, I rarely think about new footware unless it's fleese or fur lined men's boots because my feet are cold, and this trailer floor was designed with R-squat  insulation.

I do need to trim my nails though, while digging for ore inside my nose, it's easy to cut unless the nails are old enough to have dulled.

Now you know what the last 35 years have been like for me!  :P  ::)  :o  >:(  :(

This morning; after the ice storm.  I had about 2 3/4" of rain, some of it freezing, some of it liquid--plus about an inch of sleet thrown in for good measure. This is reminiscent of the big ice storm of '98 but thankfully this one only lasted for one day instead of 5.  There were widespread power outages, but nothing like in '98.  Some of these icicles were 2" long.

Send some of that ice my way, Wally. I worked up a sweat this afternoon. Got sunburned too!! Sorry, I just could not believe those pictures when we have spring with all the flowers in bloom!  But, then look at those beautiful trees you have, and the clean air, and you don't have many other things that we have out here that you don't want. You are blessed! Spring is headed your way!!

Yes, there are finally signs of spring.  Incredibly, with most of the trees still encrusted with ice this morning, 2 Red-winged Blackbirds appeared at my feeders.  They are usually the first migrants, but they certainly looked out of place with all the snow and ice.

Wow... Red Winged Blackbirds?? That is the bird I always look for when it comes to signs of spring. I haven't seen any here yet but I don't have a bird feeder either. I stopped using the presence of Robins as a spring indicator when I learned that some stay all winter if food plentiful. Especially in low land marshy areas and swamps.

I didn't know red winged blackbirds would come to a feeder.  What fun! 

There is a place we drive to that's not far away (nice wet area) where they like to congregate.  I believe they stay around all year.  It is nicer to go before the trees start getting green again.  That makes them much easier to spot and observe!  They are so beautiful and we love to hear them singing.   :)
